p.3 The Welland Canal - Only one vessel is reported down the Canal with grain for Kingston, and this notwithstanding the rise in freights. The prospect so far for the fall trade does not seem to be good, and forwarders are complaining of the want of something to do. There is only about a month now in which vessel men can accomplish anything to make them pay the expenses of the year.
